Book Review and Blog Tour Of “White Out” By Ragnar Jonasson @Orendabooks @annecater @ragnarjo
Two days before Christmas, a young woman is found dead beneath the cliffs of the deserted village of Kálfshamarvík. Did she jump, or did something more sinister take place beneath the lighthouse and the abandoned old house on the remote rocky outcrop? With winter closing in and the snow falling relentlessly, Ari Thór Arason discovers that the victim’s mother and young sister also lost their lives in this same spot, twenty-five years earlier. As the dark history and its secrets of the village are unveiled, and the death toll begins to rise, the Siglufjordur detectives must race against the clock to find the killer, before another tragedy takes place. Dark, chilling and complex, Whiteout is a haunting, atmospheric and stunningly plotted thriller from one of Iceland’s bestselling crime writers (From Goodreads)
Thank you to Orenda Books and Anne Cater for asking me to join the blog tour, and for sending me a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
As you all very well know by now, I love Orenda Books, Karen publishes some of the best books I have ever read. This one being no exception.
Because this is part of a series, I am going to limit my review as to not spoil anything
for future readers.
I enjoyed this book, it was a well thought out, well paced mystery. I love Ragnars dramatic, and complex writing style. It’s been known to give me the chills, and I love that about a book. One that can
convey such a physical reaction, is an A+ read in my opinion. He really just pulls me in to his world. I have only read one book in this series (prior to this one) and I would say they are easy enough to understand if you choose to read them as stand-alone.
I loved the dark grittiness of this book, the secrets that were unraveled and of course I really enjoyed Ari, and getting to know more about him.
I hope you guys read this, and I hope you enjoy his books as much as I do!!
